We have four teams vying for the right to go to the Super Bowl here in North Miami, as well as two parties vying this upcoming week to fire the opening shots in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Football first. The
Titans versus Chiefs. Here is all Tennessee has done on its improbable run to the AFC Championship Game. They beat the team with the best defense in football in 2019 (The Cheaters of New England) and then beat the team with the best offense in football (The Ravens of Baltimore). And they beat both teams on the road. What can't they do? Beat the Chiefs in KC. But this game should be close. KC will be without their star rookie Safety Juan Thornhill (torn ACL) and pro-bowl D Lineman Chris Jones (calf) is a game-time decision. The Titans can run the rock even when teams stack the line to stop the run. That will keep the game close. In week Ten Tennessee beat the Chiefs at home 35-32. It might not be that close on the road, but it should be within a TD. Tennessee +7.
Green Bay at San Fran. In Week 12 San Fran blew out the Pack 37-8 after jumping out to a 23-0 lead. Second verse, same as the first. The 49'ers have the D stop Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Jones and anyone else named Aaron or otherwise on Green Bay. 7.5 seems like a lot to give up, but we are not buying into the Packers hype. It's more hope than hype, and their run stops in San Fran on Sunday. San Fran - 7.5.
PELOSI V TRUMP.
The President travels to the Senate this week to fight impeachment charges on the road, albeit in front of a friendly crowd of Republican Senators. Coming off a loss in the House where POTUS didn't even show up, the President employs a "spread-defense" with aging superstars Ken Starr, Alan Dersh, along with Pam Bondi and a host of others. Pelosi counters with her handpicked team of members of Congress that no one could have named three months ago.
Pelosi needs sixty-seven votes and she cannot count on more than fifty. At Trump plus at least seventeen, it's a hard line to turn down. Take the President and the points and look for a quick victory.
